I get really frustrated when I see people and companies online selling unrealistic dreams when it comes to coding education.
A few days ago I received an email regarding Boot.dev where the sender informed me:
If you want to learn to code, there are many strategies to get your coding skills from non-existent to employable.
Step 1: Develop a caffeine addiction. 🔗If you want to add coding to your list of skills, either out of curiosity or to take your career in a whole new direction, you’ve probably considered a coding bootcamp.
I’ve been building Boot.dev as a side-project for the last couple of years, and have recently had many new students ask the same question:
And an answer to what you’re really asking: “are coding bootcamps worth it?” 🔗I’ll give you the quick answer right off the bat: coding bootcamps cost 13,500 on average based on the data collected by BestColleges.
I looked at the cost, duration, structure, and USP for each online coding bootcamp 🔗If you’ve been living under a rock for the last decade, let me quickly tell you about what a coding bootcamp is before I get into the top online coding bootcamps.
I’ve found that almost anyone I talk to agrees with the statement: There is something wrong with education, particularly higher education.
